Before anyone ever thought to look for a nearsighted man wearing over-sized glasses and a red and white striped shirt, young readers in my generation flipped page after page, seeking out a cute little cricket named Goldbug. Nearly everyday my brothers and I followed the adventure of Ma, Pa, Pickles, and Penny Pig as they navigated their way to the beach for a picnic in this fun book. My mom would occasionally try to move the story along and flip more than one page at a time, but we always caught her.
I’m sure you’re wondering where this little journey down memory lane is going, or how I even got here in the first place. Sometimes it’s best not to try and figure out how my brain works. I’ll spare you the convoluted details, but here’s the skinny:
I’m setting up a little fair adventure for everyone next week. You’re all going, right? If not, you should! I’ll be there and I’ll be handing out awesome prizes for those that want them. The key is, you have to find me at the right time (that means you can’t stake out the gates and pounce on me when I arrive) and right place (more details later this week...) and ask!
What am I giving away? This is so exciting peeps!
Each night I’m there I’ll be handing out three prizes to three lucky winners:
1. a coupon for half off any* session you choose (*weddings are excluded, everything else is fair game)
2. a coupon for a free CD ($99 value) of your images from your regularly-scheduled session
3. a coupon for $137 in print credit (why 137? It’s the 137th annual Troy Fair!)
This is good stuff!
Now, some of you know my face but some of you might not, so how will you track me down? I’ll be posting little clues here and there all week and if you follow me on Twitter, there will be real-time hints and status updates on my location every night. P.S. I’ll tell you right now, I won’t be there Thursday.
The only way this is going to be any fun is with PARTICIPATION! So, to make sure we get a good buzz for this adventure, I have a big grand prize that you can earn by helping me spread the word. Here’s how it’s going to work:
1. earn a point when you “like” CLG on facebook (already like me? Great! You have a point already… just leave a comment below to let me know)
2. earn 5 points for sharing a link to this post on your facebook wall (share the link where you did so in the comments below)
3. earn a point every time you “like” a status update on the contest posted on my timeline
4. earn 5 points when you start following @CLGPhotos on Twitter, and then
5. earn a point every time you retweet a #myfairadventure update
The person with the most points at the end of fair week wins. It's that simple.
So, what do you get for being all “social”? What’s the grand prize? A session* of your choice (again: *weddings are excluded, everything else is fair game), totally FREE! Who doesn’t love free? Let’s spread the word and have FUN!
